Secretary of Education Susan Bunting recognized 17 schools from across the state for their students’ academic achievement today. The students showed exceptional performance on state tests or made remarkable progress in closing the achievement gaps between student groups, including those from low-income families, racial minority groups and students with disabilities.
Secretary of Education Susan Bunting today announced more than $458,000 in federal grants to expand high school career pathway programs and to support all youth in their pursuit of college and career-readiness coursework. The statewide Delaware Pathways initiative aims to prepare all students to excel in key industries that offer good jobs in today’s economy.
Secretary of Education Susan Bunting welcomes the second cohort of her Teachers Advisory Council to gather feedback of educators from across the state. Established last year, the council includes up to two teachers from each of the state’s 19 school districts and up to six charter school educators. Bunting aims for the group to facilitate communication, contribute to solutions, and help increase the voice of teachers in policy decisions.
Provide feedback on Delaware Ed-Flex application
DDOE is applying to the U.S. Department of Education for waivers of certain federal grant requirements. This application process is called Ed-Flex and is made available to states through the Education Flexibility Partnership Act of 1999, as evidenced by the more-recent Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Ed-Flex provides states, districts and charter schools with increased flexibility in implementing federal education programs.
